by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Wright faced the minimum hitters through four innings, but ran into some issues in the fifth. After hitting leadoff man Martin Prado, Wright picked up two quick outs. Then after a walk put two men on, Wright forced a groundout to end the inning.

Wright, who remains 1-0, maintained his perfect 0.00 ERA in 14 1/3 innings of work. He will look to keep things rolling Thursday against the White Sox.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(11:11 pm ET) Marlins pitcher Dan Haren tossed six scoreless innings on Saturday, allowing seven hits in Miami's 1-0 win over the Orioles in 13 innings, but did not factor into the decision.

Haren struck out six with three walks in his outing. Although Haren put himself into multiple jams, including the first inning when he put runners on first and third with one out, he was able to work out of them without allowing a run.

Haren, who remains 4-2, lowered his ERA to 3.09 in 55 1/3 innings of work. He will look to get his fifth win of the year on Friday against the Mets.

Napoli ripped a solo home run over the Green Monster in the second inning off of C.J. Wilson. Then in the sixth, Napoli did the same thing when he belted a two-run shot off of Wilson, his seventh of the season.

Napoli is now hitting .193 with 17 RBI in 135 at-bats this season.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Wilson had issues in the second inning when Mike Napoli belted a solo shot over the Green Monster. Then in the third, Wilson put runners on first and third for Mookie Betts, who singled to left center, plating another run. Wilson then surrendered a second home run to Mike Napoli, this time a two-run shot.

Wilson, now 2-3, moved his ERA to 3.36 in 59 innings of work. He will look to get back on track Thursday against the Tigers.


Red Sox pitcher Steven Wright allows two runs in win on Saturday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(10:57 pm ET) Red Sox pitcher Steven Wright allowed two runs on four hits in  6 1/3 innings of work in Boston's 8-3 win over the Angels on Saturday.

Wright's only blemish came in the first inning when he allowed three of the first four hitters to reach safely, including back-to-back doubles by Albert Pujols and Kole Calhoun, leading to two runs. Wright settled down and got out of the inning without anymore damage.

Wright, now 2-1, lowered his ERA to 3.68 in 22 innings of work. He will look to keep things rolling Thursday against the Rangers.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(10:49 pm ET) Giants closer Santiago Casilla needed to get one out to record his 12th save of the season in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Rockies.

The bottom of the ninth inning started with the Giants up 10-6. Sergio Romo came on to try can close it out, but after getting the first two batters out, Romo gave up back-to-back hits, with run coming in.  

So manager Bruce Bochy brought in Casilla to get the final out. The right-hander served up another pair of singles, allowing the Rockies to get within two. But ultimately, Casilla got the third out to pick up the save. 

Both runs in the ninth were charged to Romo. Casilla has now gone 11 straight appearances without allowing a run.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

The home plate umpire went out to the mound after noticing something on Matusz's arm. When he determined it was an illegal substance, he discussed with manager Buck Showalter briefly before ejecting Matusz from the game.

Matusz went 2/3 of an inning with a strikeout before getting tossed.
